New Technology Puts Camera Into Cable Box

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

"Big Brother" is coming to your living room.

Verizon has filed a patent for a cable box that watches what you are doing and shows commercials based on what it sees.

This is how it works. For instance, the box detects when people are cuddling, and then show commercials for romantic vacations or flowers.

While this may be good for advertisers, others are calling the new cable box a privacy nightmare.

Watch the video to hear our discussion on the topic from "Good Day" Friday morning.
